address in the book, you say statistics for political chicanery, well, in two sentences i heard -- obama's campaign talked about how to use the internet, very successfully. but then there's the kind of lambasting obama, we're 10 times more likely to been food stamps and that sort of excuse is taking away from wal-mart's policy, for example, spent this not an explicit chapter that addresses statistics in politics. instead, you, just about every other chapter, the way the book is laid out, his our probability chapter two, chapter three, chapter three is -- every one of those potential abuses is something that tends to show up in politics. so i use a lot of economic data. of course, the presidential campaign and others are always trying to spin economics in a way that makes him look good. so sometimes there are those examples. there's a whole chapter on polling. and, of course, polling is the point of the realm what it comes to politics. there's a lot of discussion about if you've got bad data, it doesn't matter how big your sample is, the polls will show whatever you want to show. so it do

washington bureau chief david corn. his most recent book is called "showdown: the inside story of how obama fought back against boehner, cantor and the tea party." is the showdown referring to any specific incident or just politics in general, mr. corn? >> guest: well, kind of both. the week is a we -- the book is a behind the scenes account of what happened in the white house after the november 2010 election when the republicans and the tea party really knocked barack obama for a loop and took control of the house. and then everything that happened after that. the tax cut deal, the big fights over the budget and the debt ceiling and deficit reduction, also the bin laden raid and what happened in egypt and libya. and so i'm looking at how obama made the decisions he made and took, why he took the actions he took in that very perilous time politically, but i also explain how this is all done in a way to set up the 2012 campaign that we just went through. he had a theory after he took that big hit in 2010, he had a theory that he could make the 2012 race a choice not just between him and mitt

[applause] >> we've got about 20 minutes left. i just wanted to ask one question. you know, as i read through your book, one of the quotes you have in there, iran has never attacked another state or even threatened to attack one. i've got a little bit of experience. i was at west point on the 21st of january in 1981 when we had dinner with the hostages as they came back, and i think there'd be some argument along that regard. i spent two years in afghanistan in several of the operations we did we uncovered caches and weapons that were marked with iranian markings, and our assessment was that they'd come from iran. if you look at, um, you know, the 2006 israeli fight in lebanon, i think you would have some discussions there about iranian involvement in that operation. so i hear ya t

going forward for the country is that all of us need to help president obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president bankrupts america. all of us around the table, regardless of political stripes have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that does not happen, and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence to have our voices heard as do we really want to send 55 million dollars to i understand knee sha to help -- indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rate in indonesia when we have babies here who could benefit from that same expenditure. that's enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of accumulative leave pay, and the lord blessed that into $700 million, and that comes from three things, the workers god put in my life, 70 people to help pick stock and interact with clients, and secondly, a hospitable government environment. you had a taxation and a regulatory environment which allowed me to pros

. they tried in 2011 to use the debt limit as a leverage point of force obama to swallow big spending cuts. it worked, but it was terribly damaging, but the the nation's economy and to their political capital. congressional plummeted to something like 9 percent. and they recognize that this was a bad idea. gambling with the faith and credit of the united states it turns out as a pretty bad idea. we were downgraded for the first time in the nation's history. they did not want to do that again. like us said, they did not want to vote for a bigger national debt either. that does not fit with their philosophy, so they came up with this strategy of saying, okay, we will suspend it. in the meantime, we really want the senate to pass a budget for 2014, and the law also says that if either chamber fails to adopt the budget by april 15th, their paychecks will be docked. so the whole idea of this thing is to a postpone this sort of economy prattling default situation until they can prosecute this continuing fight over taxes to a point where the budget is satisfied in the debt limit can be raised aga
